Community Health Centres still eye supervised injection after Sandy Hill approval

“At this time, Carlington CHC has an ongoing capital project including a substantial expansion and renovation to our centre, however we see a supervised injection site as part of the centre’s future,” wrote executive director Cameron MacLeod in an emailed statement.

“When the time comes to submit an application for a supervised injection Site, we will continue to be committed to community consultation as part of the process, as was done by Sandy Hill and Somerset West CHCs. We look to learn from the sites, and will work with our partners at Sandy Hill CHC and Somerset West CHC to adopt best practices.”

As quoted in CBC Ottawa news.

Community Safety Award

In November, Carlington Community Health Centre was honoured by Crime Prevention Ottawa with a Community Safety Award for Daisy’s Drop-In, a program that offers a range of services to women working in the sex trade in our community. This initiative was launched after a request from the women themselves, and is a partnership between Carlington and Ottawa Public Health.

The Drop-In operates on Friday mornings from 5:00am to 8:00am in the Caldwell neighbourhood, offering a welcoming and safe place to congregate, a healthy meal, harm reduction supplies, counseling, referalls and access to primary care to the women.

We are hopeful that stable funding will be secured in order to ensure the program’s continued success and even expansion of the model to other parts of the City.
